Home Grown Flowers! 2009 Garden

Home-Grown Flowers
For your flowers, choose a local organic florist to arrange your centerpieces and bouquets. For a
summer wedding, use farmers' market finds to create bouquet and table arrangements, or use potted plants which can be given away to your attendants at the end of your big day.

Personalized Photo Centerpiece
The conversation will be flowing as wedding guests admire photos of the bride and groom tucked inside a clear vase or candleholder. Arrange photos evenly on decorative paper. Use double-sided tape to adhere the arrangement to a small cylinder, then nestle it inside a larger glass vessel. Add flowers or a candle to the center to finish the centerpiece.

Etched-Glass Vase Centerpiece
Share a message with wedding guests by etching letters onto glass vases to spell words. Try L-O-V-E, shown here, or use the bride and groom's initials for a personal touch. Align
scrapbooking letters across the bottles, then mark off a rectangle around each letter using masking tape. Etch around each letter following the directions on the etching cream. Complete the eye-catching look by filling the vases with brightly colored flowers.
